Discussion and debate with Joe Duffy

82 year old Eileen Macken tells us about her trip to Scotland to meet her 104 year old mother. Eileen was given up for adoption when she was a baby and has never seen her mother since then.

Karen gave her dog to Deise Dog Sanctuary thinking the pet would be fostered and returned to her after she recovered from an operation. But she cannot get the dog back now because it's been re-homed. Pat from Deise Dog Sanctuary says they don't foster dogs and Karen knows this.

Martina's son has to pay €800 to SAYIT for a J1 visa. But if he were to organise the trip himself it would only cost €500. Martina says college students are paying too much for the service.

65 year old Geraldine and her 70 year old husband are struggling to look after their autistic son.

Ana cannot get the Carer's Allowance for her baby with Down Syndrome because she is self employed.

Abigail tells us about her husband's tools which were stolen last week..

Martin, a student, was scammed out of €4500.
